made on the same day, in fact come as weekly jobless claims unexpectedly skyrocketed. president obama created the jobs council back in 2011, billing the advisory board of prominent business leaders and economists from around the nation who were to offer proposals to help spur job creation and economic growth. the president only met with his jobs counselor handful of times, four to be exact, rejecting or ignoring many proposals, including a plan to lower tax rates in order to broaden the overall tax base. the council's last official meeting one and one year ago. unemployment has dropped from more than 9 percent of the council's inception to the current rate of 78%, but more than 23 million americans remain of work or are stuck in part-time jobs , wanted full-time work for. meantime, we learned initial jobless claims rose to 360,000 last week, an unexpected jump of over 38,000 from the prior week's four year low. the obama economy seems stuck in neutral. recoveries fragile. yesterday the drop in gdp. tomorrow's january unemployment report expected to remain. critics said the president h
's four year low. the obama economy seems stuck in neutral. recoveries fragile. yesterday the drop in gdp. tomorrow's january unemployment report expected to remain. critics said the president has not remained lazar focused on creating jobs, and the dissolution of the jobs council is just the latest example of that. fox news senior white house correspondent with our report. >> more than one year after his last meeting with the group, president obama is now eviewing the charter for is jobs council. the unemployment rate is falling a little more than a percentage point as the council's first meeting two years ago and no one in the white house says it has fallen far enough. officials defend the council's work in mr. obama's interaction with it. >> the jobs council provided us a series of ideas, many of which the president acted on. it did not require some leaves us ideaso be generated. >> from the start critics believe the council was intended to create the appearance of action in the face of soaring unemployment. it only met four times and had fewer than two dozen conference calls enlisting

, you're right, andrea. i mean, i think president obama can now go back and say look at the fourth quarter of 2012. things are starting to work. one interesting note, though, his inaugural address got lots and lots of attention. one thing that wasn't really in there in any specificity was the economy. it's a way forward on how she thinks the next right steps or what he thinks the next right steps are on the economy. there's some sort of gray area here in where he wants to head. >> now, before we get to chuck hagel, the sort of train wreck that happened yesterday, ruth marcus, the white house is coming out or hhs is coming out with new rules to liberalize the guidelines so that religious institutions are somewhat insulated, somewhat more insulateded. first of all, they're going to more broadly define religious institutions. also, give a separate provider so that the religious institutions themselves don't have to provide birth control to their employees. >> well, first of all, you said white house, and even though hhs issues these guidelines, one can be fairly sure that the white ho
report." all right, yesterday gdp fell slightly. today jobless claims jumped by 38,000. so is the obama economy really slumping? and how stupid is it for the president to dissolve his jobs council, which by the way was nothing more than business window dressing anyway. at least today congress did pass a debt ceiling extension so we won't go bankrupt immediately. joining me now, cnbc chief international correspondent michelle caruso cabrera and laffer. i want to ask you about this whole business. government spending on defense really collapsed and helped bring down yesterday's gdp. >> yes, it did. >> so all the liberals are saying see, we told you so, if you cut spending, you're going to ruin the economy. do you believe that? >> no, not at all. government spending is taxation. milton always said it. the government redistributes resources. you can see it really clearly. two-person world, farmer a and farmer b, if farmer b gets unemployment benefits, who do you think pays for them, farmer a? you know, government spending is taxation. the reason we have the great recession is because of the

for if confirmed. he couldn't identify what the obama administration's policy was. i think one of the telling exchanges changes when he first said that he supported containing a nuclear iran. someone hands him and a note and reads the note, i guess i misspoke. we don't have a policy on containing a nuclear iran and senator levin has to tell him, we do have a policy. we're not in favor of containment. we want to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon in the first place. the senator hagel can't even get that right, i think it really left his supporters on that committee very shaken about the case they now have to make. >> greta: he seemed woefully ill prepared. it was he was anti-israel and made the statement in the 12 years as senator, he never voted against israel at all. the way he answered the questions, he seemed woefully ill prepared. he was always on defense. >> i think he came into the hearing with a lot of liabilities. he left with a couple more. the first is the competence question, whether really he is able to address the issues he is going to have to take under his wing as secre
boehner said, quote this is the wrong time for president obama to scrap his job's council and delay his budget. month after month we see the same thing, high unemployment and more debt. 12million americans are still unemployed and it's been that way for far too long. the president's advisers say it's also the wrong time for the threat to let across the board spending cuts take the place of a balanced approach to deficit reduction. the chairman of the president's council of economic advisers said, quote, today's report is a reminder of the importance of the need for congress to act to avoid self-inflicted wounds to the economy. on the plus side there was a jump in hiring despite the uncertainty washington faced as it flirted with going over the fiscal cliff at the end of the year. jon. jon: wendell goler at the white house krupb -fg some number crunching some numbers for us, thank you. jenna: for more of a look at the 7.9 unemployment rate we'll take a look a little bit of how the numbers really affect the average american. right now the labor department says there are nearly 12.5 millio

couldn't stand george w. bush. he was denied it again so he couldn't stand barack obama and can't stand anyone that barack obama nominates. and the surge was something that was his. i think that almost in a way john mccain made the surge into the war as john mccain would have fought it as commander in chief, and anyone who questions it gets the wrath of mccain. and i watched that hearing or that part of the hearing with colonel jack jacobs and patrick murphy, the former congressman of pennsylvania that served in iraq. both of those guys have been at the bottom of the pile as jack jacobs calls it, like hagel and mccain, you just view war differently. but the lesson these two men took from vietnam seems to be so different. hagel took the questioning, the same thing patrick murphy feels, being lied to and knowing that anger that your friends died for what you believe to be a lie. mccain seems to have taken something different from it. >> we're all different. here is chuck hagel in vietnam back in '68 when he went in. he was an enlisted soldier and rose to sergeant. a noncommissioned office
